for chuck hagel as defense secretary, that sealed the deal, would you gentlemen agree? >> yeah. i never could envision how he would start obama's second term by coming out and going against chuck hagel for secretary of defense. never made any sense and yeah, once he came out, the story ended. i loved the media chatter about how hagel has this huge confirmation battle and will end up with 90 votes. schumer was the first and final voice on that, i think. >> john: i think that was more due to the alleged controversy over comments about the israeli lobby by hagel unfortunately called the jewish lobby. chuck schumer one of our most powerful jewish members of the senate. >> i was surprised. even this morning, i was watching tv. there were anti-chuck hagel ads being run by this -- one interest group. i was quite shocked. they went after him for the israel, for comments he made about -- >> myrlie evers, widow of the late, great myrlie evers. >> america, we are here, our nation's capitol, on this day, january 21, 2013, the inauguration of our 45th president, barack obama. we come at this time to

armed services committee. is the opposition to the nomination of chuck hagel as secretary of defense, is the opposition beginning to fade? >> we saw at least one senator last week make a statement, senator schumer but i notice not a lot of people rallied to join him and said fit is good enough for schumer, it is good enough for me. chuck hagel has questions to answer and one will be why is it the position you held in the past about iranian sanctions and our support for israel, no longer appear to be your positions? i'm going to meet with him this week and, the committee i'm sure in those hearings, i'll have questions there, as well. and look forward to the chance to talk to him about what he'd do. he's going to have a lot to say about our national defense for a long time. as the secretary of defense, at this time. if he becomes the secretary of defense. >> chris: senator blunt, thank you, thanks so much for coming in. always a pleasure to talk to you. up next the president takes a combative tone as he begins his second term. we'll ask our panel how this aggressive approach will work
house wants out, also in the context of the hagel nomination, to be secretary of defense, the policy of the obama administration toward iran is not containment. it's to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon. they're willing to use military force, but it was very significant he emphasize that. i don't think this committee has a lot of doubts about where kerry was on iran, but it's clearly a message the white house feels it needs to reaffirm, especially around the questions around senator hagel's statements. those are the three points i took away. >> michael crowley, thank you so much. that's going to do it for "jansing & co." we're going to continue watching this, take a quick break, and be back with thomas roberts right after this. sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. but, dad, you've got...

chuck hagel from becoming our next secretary of defense. a new conservative group with anonymous donors called americans for a strong defense is running ads urging five democrats to vote against confirming hagel. another is called use your mandate. it is also new. it also has anonymous donors. it claims to be a liberal gay rights groups but buys its ad time through a republican firm. it has no web site and no physical address. it is, however using ads and mailers to call hagel anti-gay, anti-woman and anti-israel. this is part of a larger story in "the new york times" reporting at least five other groups are engaged in trying to block the president's choice. and the increase emergence of anonymous dollars and shady front groups is likely a result of citizens united. that 2010 decision that opened the floodgates to allow interested parties to inject endless outside money into our political campaign. >> i hate citizens united. >> me, too. npr reporting for the fives time today, google is posting its policies on what information it turns over to the government as part of an effort to win t

as secretary. sources tell me the man nominated to replace him, chuck hagel, has been briefed on these changes but so far, hagel has not made any public statements one way or the other. chris lawrence, cnn, the pentagon. >>> the big story for most of us is just how cold it is and it's not going to get warmer until this weekend, so far three deaths have been reported in minnesota, wisconsin and illinois, and in north dakota, winds and snow created whiteout conditions. in washington, d.c., federal offices are open today but with an inch of snow expected, federal workers have the option of staying home to avoid the mess. >>> in upstate new york, it's the big dig-out with more snow on the way, a band of lake-effect snow stretching 150 miles, it's going to bring more and more snow to cities that have already seen up to two feet of the stuff and this bitter cold means, of course, broken pipes. >> very busy, no heat calls mostly today, we got a church in the center with no heat and we've got to do that and a couple of frozen water lines, that's it so far. >> that's it so far. in maryland a cell tower

tests of the president's second term comes quickly this week. chuck hagel - his choice as defense secretary has to win over hostile republicans. there's a senate hearing this week. john kerry on the other hand - is expected to breeze through his thursday hearing.as the choice for secretary of state. another key hearing. hillary clinton - who still holds that job - is set to testify on the attack on the american mission in libya wednesday. where she could be grilled on what went wrong. as for the debt ceiling. republicans controlling the house are moving quickly to defuse a potential debt crisis. they're offering legislation to prevent a first-ever default on u.s. debts for three months or so. that would delay what could still be a showdown. >> in my view it is not responsible to raise the debt ceiling and the way that we change the way we do things here. >> catherine: democrats don't like the 3-month delay idea.but the administration won't oppose it. some of the quirky things which were part of the are all over the internet. you heard about beyonce lip- synching. but did you know
been sent over to the senate. the nominations of john brennan for cia, chuck hagel, and john kerry and jack lew for treasury. that is a big deal in the weeks ahead. bret: it is a tradition. these nominations have been out there and but they are formally made it to the senate so they can hope that the senate will move forward in the days ahead and confirm his new cabinet. as you know, there could be some roadblocks there. questions republicans have about jack lew being nominated for treasury secretary. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the
with chuck hagel. and chuck schumer has a very special manner of knowing how to cut to the chase and asked the direct question, and it's like, you and i were talking earlier about middle of the road. you get somebody who is close friends with both and you make them decide, where are you? he's kind of that way. >> chuck schumer as the chair of the inaugural committee has a high-profile role in all of today's ceremonies. the same way dianne feinstein did in 2009. but chuck schumer, you talk about his public profile, he's essentially the policy director for the democrats in the house as they have held the majority for the entirety of president obama's first term. this week is going to be a very big week in washington, not just because of the inauguration, but because of the senate making a very important decision about whether or not they are going to change rules to further empower the democrats in the majority there, which would have a massive impact on the president's ability to get his agenda accomplished. chuck schumer right in the middle of that very technical and very political decisio

, perhaps, from people who have served especially in a mays lik place like vietnam. chuck hagel and john kerry if they get through, i think chuck hailing's nomination is going to be a lot bumper than john kerry's. martha: do you think that is the strategy to go through some of the more easier, and deal with the others down the road. >> reporter: yeah, and john brennan for cia is going to be a lot about benghazi, a lot about the drone program, and a lot of questions that we likely are going to be very interested in hearing in that hearing. martha: absolutely. bret, thank you very much. >> reporter: you got it. martha: see you tonight. bill: i can't remember the last time we saw theresa hines kerry. it's been a longtime. martha: yes it has. bill: you reached out to a number of senators. what did they tell but this hearing and what we can expect? >> reporter: they seem to think that essentially john kerry shares the president's philosophy, and so it's the privilege of the president to get a cabinet team around him essentially that will carry out his wishes, and so they felt like he has plen
. chuck hagel, that could be a little bit more. >> i think they will rough him up and be more lively than the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. t
